Cidaut organized a technical workshop on “Additive Manufacturing, 3D Printing And Scanning Technologies vs Industry 4.0”

11/17/2016 by cidaut

The latest technological developments, hyperconnectivity and the globalisation of the economy are creating important challenges and opportunities for our economy. These issues are already changing the “how to make” of our enterprises. This is what is recognized as Industry 4.0 or Fourth Industrial Revolution. It´s comprised of growing trends in new processing technologies, automations, the internet of things, big data and cloud computing technologies, etc. Just like steam power, electricity and digital automation of the previous industrial revolutions, cyber-physical systems and new processing technologies will create the factory of the future; the smart factory.

In this sense,
